The “golden couple” that’s the talk of the tabloids isn’t Brangelina or the upcoming royal nupitals, it’s America’s sweethearts Barbie and Ken. After calling it splitsville back in 2004, Ken finally wooed back his lady love using the national media and his signature charm. So how did he do it? Well the book, “I Love Ken: My Life As the Ultimate Boyfriend” might offer some clues as well as helpful advice.

Written by Jef Beck, the preeminent Ken Doll collector and “Ken historian”, this book explains how to be the ultimate boyfriend. Learn how to shower your gal with gifts, how to be the perfect escort and even find time to pursue your own manly interests.

This is a great gift for any Barbie/Ken enthusiast or gag gift for a girlfriend. And if that’s not enough, you can get Ken all to yourself with the Sweet Talking Ken Doll. He can be customized to say any message that you record for him, really making him.. the ultimate boyfriend.
